AMMF (The Alan Morement Memorial Fund) is the UK's only cholangiocarcinoma charity (CC is bile duct cancer). We work to raise awareness, to provide information, and to support research.

Cholangiocarcinoma (CC), also known as bile duct cancer, is a primary liver cancer. Considered a rare cancer, the incidence of CC is increasing year on year and currently we don't know why. Approximately 1,800 people per year in the UK now die from CC - it is very difficult to diagnose and to treat, and only 5% of those receiving a CC diagnosis will be alive one year later. Considering the incidence, awareness levels of CC are low even amongst medics, and there is a great need for further research into this ruthless disease.  As the UK's only cholangiocarcinoma charity, AMMF's current objectives are to raise the awareness of cholangiocarcinoma (bile duct cancer), to support specialised research teams in their work to find the causes, methods of earlier diagnosis and treatments, and to provide information on this disease to those who need it.

Coats' disease is also known as Coats' Retinitis, Coats' Syndrome, Exudative Retinitis, and Retinal Telangiectasis. There is some evidence to suggest that Coats' Disease is caused by a somatic mutation of the NDP gene. (Norrie Disease Protein). You can search this link ( http://www.sph.uth.tmc.edu/Retnet/disease.htm ) for "NDP", to find the gene loaction.  Coats’ disease is a very rare  condition where there is abnormal development in the blood vessels behind the retina. The blood rich retinal capillaries break open, leaking the serum portion of the blood into the back of eye. The leakage causes the retina to swell, and can cause partial or complete detachment of the retina. Coats' disease is seen predominantly in males, about 69 percent of the cases. It progresses gradually and affects central vision. It is almost always unilateral (affects only one eye). If caught early, some level of vision can typically be restored. If not caught until it's late stages, complete loss of vision can occur. In it's final stages, enucleation (removal of the affected eye) is a potential outcome.
